Simple Woman's Daybook ~ December 7, 2009

For today... December 7, 2009

Outside my window...
the sun is trying to shine through
the cloudy, cool sky

I am thinking...
of my family, who just had the loss
of a precious loved one

I am thankful for...
the God of all Comfort
and for His Word

I am wearing...
checkered, fruit print jumper
and brown Crocs

I am remembering...
the LORD is in control; to trust HIM
and to choose gratitude

I am going...
to enjoy a cozy day at home

I am reading...
my KJ Bible through in a year,
currently in Nehemiah, Song of Solomon, 2 Corinthians;
A Wife After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George;
A Woman's Walk With God by Elizabeth George;
When Women Walk Alone by Cindi McMenamin;
For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn;
Order in the Court by Sherry Hutson Camperson;
Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey;
A Charlotte Mason Companion by Karen Andreola;
Keeping Our Children's Hearts by Steve and Teri Maxwell
How to Be Happy by Leon F. Maurer
Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh DeMoss (with my eldest)

I am hoping (praying)...
for the Holy Spirit to comfort my family
during this time, as my aunt passed away last night.
Praying the LORD will grip hearts
and that they will be turned towards HIM

On my mind...
my grieving family
and the goodness of God

From the learning rooms...
being students of God's Word in John and Ruth;
learning of Ancient Greece
and other miscellaneous subjects

Noticing that...
giving thanks and praise to the LORD of all
is easy, natural, and overflowing when we have a heart
of thankfulness and an attitude of gratitude

Pondering these words...
"Blessed be God, even the Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies,
and the God of all comfort;
~ 2 Corinthians 1:3

From the kitchen...
clean up is needed from the weekend's cooking

On the Menu...
M ~ wet burritos
T ~ lasagna
W ~ grilled cheese and turkey
Th ~ potato soup
F ~ Sourdough Pizza
S ~ burgers
Sun ~ roast

Around the house...
the younger children are cleaning;
eldest is getting ready for the day

I am creating...
nothing at present
but hope to find new projects soon...
possibly some upcoming gifts

I am hearing...
the children chatter in the other room

One of my favorite things...
spending the day at home

A few plans for the rest of the week...
focus on some learning moments;
clean the church; go to the store
to pick up materials for crafts this week;
attend our midweek prayer/Bible service;
go to Beth's violin lesson;
go to our keeper's meeting at church;
enjoy the time that we get to have at home ;o)

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

from my etsy shop

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD:
though your sins be as scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow."
~ Isaiah 1:18

What a beautiful Truth and promise!
Oh, the goodness of Jehovah God!

Have a wonderful week!

Sorry for the loss in your family. I pray the Lord will comfort you all at this time. What a wonderful verse you shared that reminds us of what is done for us.
